I CUTTER FOR MEAT, VEGETABLES, AN D PASTRY.
To all whom it may concem':
Be it known that 1 Luis!) A BUQHTEL, a citizen of the United tates, resldmg at New York, count of New York, and State of New York, ave invented certain new and useful-Improvements in Cutters for Meat,
- Vegetables, and Pastry, of which the followin is a specification.
.lhis invention relates to an improved vegetable chopping implement adapted for use in chopping. or cutting vegetables into relatively fine particles, the invention 113V.
ing for a general object to provide an implement of this type characterized by ease of manipulation, and efliciency and rapidity of operation.
A more specific object is to provide a multiple-edged vegetable chopping unplement of light and inexpensive, but urable, construction.
For further comprehension of the inven.
tion, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be, had to the following description and accompanying drawings,
and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
Figure 1 of the drawings is a perspective view of a vegetable chopping implementsguare, as seen in edge view, the two pairs o opposed walls of this frame forming the outer blades of the two series above referred to, these pairs of walls being numbered 1, 1 and 2, 2 respectively.
Within this frame are fixed a desired number of intermediate knife blades of which there are here provided one pair 3, soldered or otherwise secured at opposite ends to the elements 1 and extending parallel to the elements 2, and a secondpair 4, soldered or otherwise secured at opposite ends to the Y elements 2 and extending parallel to the elements 1, these intermediate knives being spaced evenly in the frame so that the com- Specification of Letters Patent.

bined cutting blades form a series of squares as seen in edge view.
These intermediate blades 3, 4 are referably of equal width-to the frame bla es 1, 2 as clearly shown in Figs. and 2, with their cuttingi edges in the same plane as'the cut-' ting e intermediate knives to cross each other they are each formed witha pair of slots such aso'extendin from one edge half-way toward .the other e ge so that the two series of intermediate knives can be assembled and interlocked together iiivgrill form.

ges of the latter, and to enable these improved imple-- rangement .of parts, both. to facilitate the manipulation of an implement of this type, and. to brace the frame structure thereof. This handle comprises a pair of crossed rods 7 and 8 whose main lengths extend horizontally above the cutting blades and diagonally of the'latter and which have their ends turned downwardly as at 7 and 8 to engage in the corners of the outer frame element 1, 2, to which they are soldered, the two rods being also soldered together at the point where they crosses at 10.
It will be obvious that the construction of these rods 7 and .8 is such that a rigid brace is formed by a dontinuous bar of metal extending diagonally across the frame and secured to diagonally disposed corners. It is well known that rectan ul'ar frames of this character are liable to isto-rtion by the ap-- proach of diagonally opposite corners so that the frame instead of being rectan lar becomes diamond or lozenge-shaped. e brace rods in this device, running as they do continuously from corner to corner, prevent such distortion. Moreover the downwardly bent ends of the rods engaging in the angles formed by adjacent sides and being there secured aid in tion.
Having thus described myinvention what ters Patent of the United States is as follows:
preventing such distor- 1. In a device of the kind described, an
outer straplike cutting blade forming a rectangular frame, and handle means adapted to prevent distortion of said frame and con sisting of rigid wires extending contin- I claim as new and desire to protect by'Let- 'ously across said frame between diagonally 2. In a device of the kind described, an.
outer strap-like cutting blade forming :1 rectangular frame, and handle means adapted to prevent distortion of said frame and consisting of rigid Wires extending continuously across said frame between diagonally dis- 1 posed corners thereof, said Wires having their central portions parallel to the frame and being provided with rectangularly bent ends extending Within the angles formed by adjacent sides of the frame, said ends being soldered to the frame sides whereby the ends strengthen the angles of the frame and assist in preventing distortion thereof.
In testimony whereof I have affixed my signature. LUISE A. BUCHTEL.
